The Teamsters Local 700 negotiating committee met with the City again yesterday to discuss contract proposals prepared by the union. Local 700 gave the City comprehensive proposals on the pool driver system, sick leave and others focused on improving safety and work rules. Unfortunately, the City was unable to respond to any of the proposals at this time.
Negotiations will resume with the City during the first week of October. The COUPE will meet as a group next week and with the City as well. We will update you again as negotiations continue.
